December: The Buckingham, Joy To The World 

DECEMBER 4
THE FORTRELLES at The Buckingham
Free Show - 9PM

It's winter in Edmonton. It's cold. You probably don't like leaving your house unless you seriously have to. But this show is an excellent excuse for getting out your dancing shoes - er... boots -  and warming up to the sweet sounds of old-school R&B, Motown and Soul. Think The Sonics meet The Supremes, with a little spit, polish and hairspray, and you get these shimmy shakin’ sirens of garage, rock and soul. With songs by artists like The Supremes, Martha and The Vandellas, The Ronettes, The Shirelles, Aretha Franklin, Etta James and many more. Choreographed dances, classic 1960's attire, guitar solo battles... I love playing in this band!

DECEMBER 11
W/THE MARWILLS & ELLIOT THOMAS at The Buckingham
By Donation - 8PM

The Marwills are based in Toronto, and this is their first time back to play Edmonton in years. I love these guys and their music. We've been good pals since our MacEwan music days, and I'm so excited to finally play a show with them. It's like Christmas is coming early this year! Edmonton's Elliot Thomas is going to kick off the night, followed by my little big band, and finally, The Marwills. Lets dance our butts off and then all get post-show donairs! (Unless you're vegetarian. Falafel.)

DECEMBER 14
JOY TO THE WORLD:
